Jana attends a family reunion at a pizza place, organized as a farewell party for her dad who is awaiting a difficult operation. The words „everything is going to be all right“ become a mantra repeated again and again, as if to ward off any thoughts of death from the table. She just has to give a few small tokens of appreciation to the nurses, an envelope to the doctor, and stay positive.
